We actually would like to go Karimunjawa Islands but we ran out of the tickets for the ferry, so we explored three beaches in Jepara instead. They were not bad! Those beaches are: Pantai Bondo, Pantai Empu Rancak, and Pantai Bandengan.

Before going, we ate Nasi Padang and you can watch Daniel reaction eating that spicy food. We enjoyed those three beaches and in our opinion, Bondo Beach is pretty instagrammable and has a lot of nice spots to take pictures, Empu Rancak Beach is quiet cause there were not many people when we got there (the sand is very clean here though!), and Bandengan Beach is the one with the most crowd (it reminded me of Kuta Beach in Bali). You will watch in this video that Bandengan Beach has indeed so many visitors as it is the most popular beach in Jepara. Daniel bought a new hat there at Bandengan Beach and we enjoyed the sunset view before we got back to our homestay and prepared for the next day's trip to Karimunjawa Islands!

In this video, Daniel and I explored a traditional market called Pasar Ungaran or Pasar Bandarjo in Semarang Regency. We bought some things, including chicken heads!

After that we rode on an "Andong" or "Dokar" in Javanese language and were headed to my home. In front of my home, there is a ricefield and Daniel was so excited to see the ricefield. It was a nice view indeed. At my home, Daniel met my mom, played with my cat and got massaged by an old woman who gave Indonesian traditional massage. After that Daniel tried eating chicken head for the first time. He was so afraid, lol! He successfully ate the brain but didn't want to try to eat the eye of the chicken head. He continued eating the other part of the chicken: wings, with much sambal! I have never known a bule could eat sambal that much! Last, we strolled along the ricefield in front of my house and enjoyed the nice view!

Watch this reaction of bule eating hot and spicy Siomay! Siomay is an Indonesian steamed fish dumpling with vegetables served in peanut sauce. It is derived from Chinese Shumai.

It is considered a light meal that is similar to the Chinese Dim Sum, but is cone shaped. It is traditionally made from tenggiri (wahoo) fish meat. Sometimes other types of seafood such as tuna, mackerel, and prawn also can be used to make siomay. Other complements to siomay are steamed cabbage, potatoes, bitter gourd, boiled egg, and tofu. Siomay is cut into bite size pieces and topped with peanut sauce, sweet soy sauce, chili sauce and a dash of lime juice.

Originally established by the Chinese Muslim explorer Zheng He (also known as Sanbao), it is now shared by Indonesians of multiple religious denominations, including Muslims and Buddhists, and ethnicities, including Chinese and Javanese. We also ate Loenpia at Loenpia Mbak Lien. Daniel even dared to eat green chili!

Exploring a colorful village in the center of Semarang city. This village is called Kampung Pelangi (Rainbow Village). This village is pretty instagrammable! If you visit Semarang, don't forget to visit this place.

After visiting this village, we went to a famous Chinese temple in Semarang called Sam Poo Kong. We went there by bus (Trans Semarang). My German boyfriend also tried Good Day Coffee which has unique flavor: Avocado Coffee.

In this video, we explored DP Mall, one of the malls in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia. Not only the Carrefour part, we also watched a movie and ate Currywurst.

My boyfriend explained the difference of Currywurst with other sausages. He ate the Currywurst but seemed like he didn't really like Indonesian version of Currywurst, he still thinks that original German Currywurst is the best, lol! Then we enjoyed Bunderan Simpang Lima in the evening. We rode a funny-looking vehicle and captured many photos of the surrounding. Around 8 p.m. we were headed back to Ungaran and before I took him back to the C3 Hotel, we went to Superindo to buy some things that he missed so much: Pop Mie and Super Bubur!

Hello, in this video I explore Kota Lama (Old Town) area in Semarang. I was not alone because I was accompanied by my boyfriend. He is from Germany and he spent 21 days here in June-July 2018.

After exploring Kota Lama, we were headed to Citraland Mall to eat sushi at Ichiban Sushi. This is the first time he tried to use chopstick. It was an epic fail of him to use choptick when eating sushi, lol. Check out our next video: After eating, we explored the mall a bit and then we went to other mall called DP Mall to watch a movie and my boyfriend also tried Currywurst at that mall. He still thought that original German Currywurst is the best one! Lol. Then we enjoyed our evening at Bunderan Simpang Lima, riding a funny-looking vehicle with much lights! That activity would be in our next video.

Pada tanggal 26 Juni 2018, pacar bule saya, Daniel, datang lagi ke Indonesia. Ini adalah second meeting atau pertemuan kedua kami. First meeting kami ada di tahun 2016. Sayangnya waktu itu saya belum tertarik untuk membuat video dan hanya punya foto saja sebagai kenang-kenangan momen tersebut. Nah kali ini di pertemuan kedua ini saya tentu saja membuat video yang dapat dilihat di bagian akhir postingan ini.

Eniwei, saya menjemput pacar saya yang berasal dari Jerman tersebut di Bandara Ahmad Yani Semarang pada malam hari sekitar jam 7. Bandara ini sekarang sudah modern sekali dan keren sekali. Sebelumnya ndak bagus, hehe maap dulu malah kayak terminal bus, wkwkw. Nah, kali ini pacar saya sampe takjub dan kaget kok bandaranya udah baru. Maklum, taun 2016 bandaranya masih yang di lokasi lama yang crowded abis itu. Sekarang bandaranya legaaa luasss dan cetaar. Duh apaan sih nih kok bahas Bandara Ahmad Yani mulu.. okelah mari lanjut ke pertemuan kembali dengan pacar bule.

Ketemuan kali ini kok ya tetep aja nervous, tapi kayaknya sih nervousnya karena laper belum makan. Eh apa hubungannya yaa.. :p. Langsung kami ke spot halte bus Trans Semarang di Bandara dan cuss sampe ke halte Simpang Lima. Kalo udah malem bus Trans udah ga bisa ke Ungaran. So abis turun di Simpang Lima saya langsung order GoCar dan dalam waktu 30-40an menit udah sampai di Hotel C3 Ungaran. 

Setelah beres konfirmasi booking, langsung kami ke kamarnya untuk naruh koper dan segenap aneka barang bawaan dia yang lainnya. Oiya, dia booking kamar disini biar deket sama rumah saya, kebetulan saya tinggal di Ungaran. Tanpa ba bi bu, kami pun ke Aneka Sari, restoran seafood murah di sebelah Hotel C3. Menu-menunya memang mantap, porsi banyak, tapi harganya terjangkau. Pacar bule saya mencoba menu Es Teler, Bakmi Goreng, dan Lele Penyet. Nah yang lucu nih waktu makan Lele Penyet, dia makannya ala warteg gitu langsung pakai tangan, wkwk emang dia waktu pertama kesini udah saya ajarin cara makan ikan pake tangan sih, eh ternyata dia keterusan sampe sekarang kalo makan ikan selalu langsung pake tangan. Lebih sedap katanya! 

Ga cuma langsung pake tangan, dia juga makan banyak sambal. Daniel memang suka banget sama yang serba hot and spicy, lol. Bahkan dulu dia bawa pulang banyak Sambal Terasi dan Bon Cabe buat suvenir! Sehabis makan, Daniel balik ke kamarnya di Hotel C3, sedangkan saya langsung balik pulang kerumah dan tidur. Besok pagi kami akan jalan-jalan ke Kota Lama Semarang.

Second meeting dan reaksi pacar bule makan lele pakai tangan ini bisa ditonton di video ini. If you like the video, please give the thumbs up and subscribe yaa... Selamat menonton :)
